Big Orange Bash Donation Magnets

Big Orange Bash Donation Magnets

Normally I donate custom model horses to model horse live shows, but this time around I figured a small herd of Fat Pony magnets might be more fun! 🙂

I’ve made donations for Big Orange Bash (Knoxville, TN) before and I’m more than happy to keep them hock deep in magnets or models. The show is a fund raiser for the Large Animal Clinic at the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine and if my silly little horses can help, how can I pass that up?

I went for a full fantasy herd this time around, in homage to my past donations, and tried to get as much variation as I could into the ranks. Part of this was because I was going to use the photos in the Etsy store, so two birds (err, 11 fat ponies) with one stone!

Color: Tiger-striped Springbok-ish
Medium: Acrylics
Gallery: Unicorn
Status: Painted 200? currently part of the Home Herd

This little precurser to Muleycorn was actually my first stab at customizing the G2 Mule mold. I only ended up painting a few of these during my customizing run… I just didn’t think the mold was very interesting, which amuses me highly since now I wish I had more of them! Continue reading

Status: Painted 200? and Sold 200?

What can I say about this little guy… you had to be there? *grin* Muley was (I think) the third in the line of unicorn resculpts and I was starting to get the hang of things. I’m not sure what’s scarier, the fact that I actually have reference photos, or that this was technically my second Muleycon (Ripley’s Whimsy was the first).

There is something oddly addicting about adding horns to Mules. Continue reading
